The Carousel Dance Club 
opened the season with a Foot¬

and did some cheers. Marily 
Ellis, Sukey Fenoglio, Pugie 
Cornwell, Letitia Kinzbach and 
Audrey Riggs led them. 

Were you walking down the 
hall when all of a sudden two 
hands started frantically wav¬ 
ing ? If you did, there’s no need | 
to panic . . it was only Marilyn ! 
Martin and Robert Laguarta 
saying hello. 

Carole Cloninger, better known 
as “C. C.”, gave a slumber 

party the Friday night of the 
Carousel Dance. Some of the 
merry night-gowners were
